I’m rather lucky to have The New Inn as my closest pub (1.1 miles door to door to be precise). It’s undergone a bit of a transformation in recent years under the capable hands of it’s owners Dionne and Cameron, and can now firmly be classed as a gastropub and good all round watering hole. Dionne takes care of the bar, whilst Cameron cooks up a storm in the kitchen. I can tell you first hand the fish and chips are to die for (a few from the shoot may just have mysteriously disappeared).
I really enjoyed photographing the pub, it’s a bit of a departure from my more usual wedding and portrait assignments, but I’d love to do more of this type of photography. It’s actually not so different from wedding photography – they key is trying to capture the essence and atmosphere of the place, including the details, people, and venue.
If you find yourself in North Yorkshire any time soon, I’m sure you won’t need too much of an excuse to pop in for a drink or two ;-)
